As the distribution pattern of cytokeratin (CK), filaggrin and involucrin has recently been suggested to discriminate between benign and malignant epithelial growths, biopsies of healthy oral mucosa, leukoplakias without and with dysplasia and squamous cell carcinomas were examined immunohistochemically using a panel of 4 monoclonal antibodies (AB) against… (More)
